This Week November 1, 2022

Dear Folks,

Here we are in November!  Time flies! 

This Sunday, November 6, is the Twenty-Second Sunday after Pentecost.  The scripture is II Thessalonians 2:13-17.  The sermon is “Hold Fast”.  We will be celebrating Holy Communion, so be sure to have your elements ready.  We will also have some available if you are worshiping on-site.

The Pumpkin & Holly Fair is quickly approaching, November 18, 5:30 p.m. to 8, and November 19, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Any help is greatly appreciated!  Please be sure to pick up a Pumpkin & Holly Fair lawn sign for your property.  They are just inside the side door to the Alcove.

Thank you to everyone who has returned their Faith Promise cards.  If you have not, please do so as soon as possible. It really helps in planning the 2023 budget.  Thank you for your faithfulness!
